that moment when you’re trying to focus on the Hugos packet but your favorite author’s new book comes out

One of the great things about when the voters packet comes out is several weeks of great reading counts as working on my to-do list

Hulu sent out a Pride 2018 email with the subject “Hulu is Proud to Recognize Diversity in TV & Film”

Of 8 featured characters, 4 are white men and two are white women.

Morning thoughts... if Mastodon’s model (federated, open source, interconnected, non-profit) is the social network model that I want to see succeed

then I should use Mastodon.

I just need to hack my interactions with it so that it works for me instead of the other way around.

I got news alerts, from a newspaper and a national radio/online outlet, about a topic last night and an update at about 8am this morning, after alerts intermittently over the last 10 days as an investigation is ongoing.

Hello friends! As a reminder, we take reports very seriously, and try to respond to them within 24 hours (there's just too of us, and sometimes we get busy).

Coming back from the void to ask for takes on Star Trek Discovery. I dropped off early on bc it seemed like the writers were going to use Tilly as Sheldon-In-Space.

How did this go - positive autism representation or stereotypes for comedy?

part of me wants to have a twitter account again, just so that i can interact with the dozen or so people whose feeds i'm following through rss

on a scale of apples to oranges, how much of a trashfire is birdsite nowadays? are they actually enforcing community guidelines?

Starting the pilot. I'm only 8 minutes in, but middle-aged & black are two very underrepresented characteristics in superheroes.

Shout out to all the people with "Face ID is insecure!" hot takes who are now uploading their selfies to that Google painting thing.

I'm up to episode 25 of -
They've fan-pitched two versions of a Boba Fett movie and I love both ideas
-after RotJ, it's like Smokin' Aces as lots of bounty hunters try to claim the armor so they can be the next Boba Fett
-John Wick (that's all they said, but I'm imagining Hutt strongholds as The Continental, and getting that stunt team into the non-lightsaber part of SW, and it's wonderful)
